StampCollectionDonationGiftThe John B. Lathrop Memorial Fund Created
Many Fellows remember John for his love and devotion to the International College of Dentists. He served in many leadership positions including President of the Section and was the President of the Foundation at the time of his tragic passing. John was also an avid collector of dental theme stamps from around the world with over 600 stamps in his collection. These stamps were generously donated to the Foundation by John's wife, Ruth. Those who donate at the Founders Level of $1,000 or more will receive an engraved Stamp Collections with five or six dental stamps as seen in the photo while supplies last.

On behalf of the USA Section and Foundation, we would like to thank Ruth Lathrop for donating this wonderful collection of dental stamps to the Foundation in memory of her husband. For more information and a list of founders click here »
